Michael Moore’s docu “Sicko,” expanding into 441 theaters, made an estimated $1.3 million to $1.5 million Friday.

Friday ticket sales for Universal’s laffer “Evan Almighty,” in its second frame, came in at an estimated $5.1 million, bringing pic’s cume to roughly $50.6 million.

Dimension’s horror pic “1408,” which bowed at No. 2 last weekend behind “Evan Almighty,” made an estimated $3.7 million Friday, bringing its total take to $33.4 million.
